Whether it’s a classic coat for an investment or a high fashion buy, a coat should be versatile and durable. It should also reflect a woman’s personality and make her feel confident when she is wearing it. Most importantly, it should flatter her body shape and be comfortable enough to cope with the demands of her lifestyle.
Whether it’s a casual coat, an evening coat or a coat for work, a great coat needs to deliver on style and camouflage figure flaws. A good winter coat is a big investment so it pays to take time finding the right coat and the most comfortable fit.
Finding the Right Coat Style
The most versatile coat for almost all body shapes is a straight-cut, figure-skimming coat which finishes on-the-knee. A narrow style like this will never look dated. Very petite women look great in slightly shorter coats and those with high-cut waistlines (e.g. a Princess style), whilst only tall women do floor-sweeping coats justice.
A winter coat is a wardrobe staple. By it’s very nature it tends to be one of the biggest investments of the season. Therefore, with some careful thought when shopping for outerwear can mean a coat is one of the most enduring and multifunctional pieces in a woman’s closet. Slowly but surely every year it is possible to add different style coats to make up a capsule coat collection.
